Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix all dry ingredients in one bowl, and all wet ingredients in another.

Combine bowls. May need to use your hands,it is a super doughy consistency

Press mixture into a baking pan (square casserole dish is fine too) - bake for 15, r cut into squares, place the squares apart from each other on a baking sheet and bake for another 15 minutes to crispify.
Only downside is the mild taste of protein powder, but I didn't mind it. This recipe makes 16 bars - and they freeze wonderfully :) Microwaving and eating warm is like dessert. Lemme know any great modifications! You can vary bar size as well, I can show you guys the nutritional info calculator I use - I'm addicted to it.
